Subject: this version is the best text, even with cuts
They cut a huge stack of 78's together in the back of the music shop. The version of rhapsody that my father kept was cut in the late 50's by the 'berlin philharmonic' and the cues are closer to this primary version than any other i'd heard, though the orchestration is contemporary. I have an old worn piece of vinyl, this has the soul to it. Nobody can get this piece just right.
Subject: That's Gershwin at the keyboard, by the way . . .
